A general assembly, held once every two years is a statutory obligation of FASU. This is usually a time for the executive to stand and be accountable to the members of FASU for the previous two years. This meeting MUST be held in March 2019 as per constitutional provisions.

Participation at the assembly is by Member National University Sports Federations, each represented by 3 participants (one of whom must be a student leader). The 4-day program includes a Strategic Dialogue (two days) whose participation is open to all stakeholders in university sports from Africa, and a cross country championship held on the same day of the General Assembly.  Estimate of 120 – 150 participants in the meetings. FASU works with the hosts in regards to budget and concession.
